Description

The TeamShare Storage Service provides Faculty and Staff with a shared storage space. You can use the TeamShare Storage Service to store your business related files, as noted in Policy #104. By storing your files on the TeamShare Service, your files are accessible to you from any computer connected to the UBC network (e.g. from your office or over VPN).

The TeamShare Storage Service also provides protection for your files, as all data stored on your TeamShare is backed up daily and replicated to UBCO for disaster recovery purposes.

An Enterprise Active Directory account (EAD) is required to access TeamShare. Implementation must be completed as an entire department. Individual sign up is not available.
